Lactobacillus crispatus, L. reuteri, L. amylovorus, L. gallinarum, and L. salivarius subsp. salivarius strains isolated from cloacal swabs of broiler chickens derived from 20 different farms in Belgium were tested for susceptibility to tetracycline and minocycline. Acquired resistance percentages to these antibiotics were extremely high for L. crispatus, L.(More)
Clostridium perfringens strains isolated in 2002 from the intestines of broiler chickens from 31 different farms located in Belgium were tested for susceptibility to 12 antibiotics used for therapy, growth promotion or prevention of coccidiosis. All strains were uniformly sensitive to the ionophore antibiotics monensin, lasalocid, salinomycin, maduramycin(More)
Eighty-seven Lactobacillus strains isolated from cloacal swabs of broiler chickens derived from 20 different farms in Belgium were identified to species level and tested for susceptibility to macrolide and lincosamide antibiotics. Five different Lactobacillus species were identified as being predominantly present in the cloacae of broilers: Lactobacillus(More)
A total of 73 isolates of Enterococcus spp. carrying the erm(B) gene were obtained from cloacal swabs of broiler chickens derived from 13 different farms in Belgium. The erm(B) gene encodes resistance to macrolides, lincosamides and streptogramin B antibiotics (MLS(B)). The isolates belonged to eight different species: Enterococcus avium (eight isolates),(More)
The effect of Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale vaccination of broiler breeders on antibody titres and performance of breeders and broilers was investigated. O. rhinotracheale antibody titres and performance data were recorded from 16 different broiler breeder flocks and from 79 of their broiler progeny flocks. Eight breeder flocks were vaccinated with an(More)
The purpose of this article is to present a tele-robotic application, developed on an advanced demonstration platform, incorporating reflexive tele-operated control concepts elaborated on a mobile robot system. By voice command, the operator controls the behavior of the robot, being 1 out of 4 levels of robot-operator interaction, while environmental(More)
